Koogeek was one of those suppliers that had been in the Homekit game almost from the start. The Koogeek P1 was one of the first products that I owned, so there's also a lot of history.
Although Koogeek has been around for a while, they never strayed too far from the typical plugs and lights kinds of HomeKit accessories, so when they lastly announced the Koogeek Padlock, I knew I had to look at it.
The Koogeek L1 Padlock is a solid piece of equipment and has a lock associated with weight and general stability. However, I have some worries about the precision of the fingerprint reader (often not working) and some worries about the accessibility of the factory reset button.
I think the Lock is likely overpriced given the user experience, but it's one of those stuff that a real HomeKit fan puts down cash on just because it's a somewhat distinctive form factor. (Another brand that escapes me is named).
However, I would suggest for most individuals to pass on the Koogeek Padlock until the price drops or a fresh model is published that addresses some of the present problems.
